When you buy off the rack, you are leaving distance and accuracy to chance. GOLFTEC’s 60 to 90-minute club fitting process, powered by TECFIT, ensures your PING clubs are precisely fit to your swing. Club fitting is $125 for a Driver or Iron fitting (included FREE with every Game Plan).
From flat to upright the dot colors go in the following order with gold being the flattest lie angle at 3.75 degrees to brown, orange, purple, red, black, blue, yellow, green, white, silver, and maroon being the most upright at 4.5 degrees.
I called Golf Galaxy to ask about getting fitted and they said it usually costs around $150 for a full fitting but that would be applied to new clubs if I bought them at Golf Galaxy .
And the answer is absolutely yes, it’s worth getting fit for clubs you already have. Especially if you’re 5-foot-5, since a stock set of clubs isn’t likely to have the proper lie angle for you. Luckily, if that’s the case, it’s not a difficult fix.
High handicappers aren’t getting fit for clubs , but new study says they might benefit the most. A recent clubfitting survey from industry research firm Golf Datatech suggests that of the one-third of serious golfers not getting fit for clubs , the largest percentage of them tend to have higher handicaps.
Can I buy direct from PING ? Yes.
To find the right size clubs for your body, use recent height measurement to determine the proper angle for your clubs . It usually helps to have another person measure, so you get the most accurate measurements possible. Measure your basic height from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet.
This is why PING created its colour code system. Each colour represents a specific amount and direction of deviation from each iron’s standard lie angle. In all, there are 10 different colour codes ( gold , brown, orange, red, black, blue, green, white, silver, maroon) separated by one degree.
Yes it will make a difference , I play 2 degree upright and + 1 /2. If your hitting the ball left all the while (I am guessing your right handed) won’t be to do with having the lye angle to flat. If the lye angle was to flat the toe would dig in first and open the face causing you to miss right.
The ” lie angle ” of any golf club is the angle formed between the center of the shaft and the sole, or ground line, of the club when the club is soled in its proper playing position (as at address). Lie angles almost always range from the mid-50 degrees (in drivers) to the mid-60 degrees (in short irons ).
After you make impact the line will appear on the face. If it’s pointing towards the toe, then your club is too upright. If it’s pointing towards the heel, then it’s too flat. If the line is perpendicular to the grooves on the face, then your lie angle is correct.
Though you may not think it is a good idea to get golf clubs fitted as a new golfer or for someone you know who is taking an interest in the sport, it can be highly beneficial if you know you or the person you know are going to stick with the sport, no matter if you’re playing at a competitive or recreational level.
The main difference between high and low-end golf equipment is the shaft and the quality of the materials used. More expensive shaft construction translates to better feel, potentially leading to better and more consistent swings.
Yes, it is possible to install a different clubhead on your existing shafts and grips but this does not happen without a depth of analysis to determine the outcome before the new heads are bought.
